    Menu items - move (2002)

    Afternoon -

    Is there a way to rearrange the items on Word's menus? I know I can create custom menus, but I can't figure out how to move items on default menus.

    And, I don't suppose one could switch item positions in context sensitive menus????

    Thanks, as always.

    Right click in a blank menu or toolbar area and select "customize". While the "customize" window is open, click on any menu item you wish and when the menu drops down, left click and drag any command to any position you wish. Not sure about context sensitive items.

    Yes, you can. Select Tools | Customize...
    You can now drag items on menus and on toolbars to other positions, on the same menu/toolbar or even on another menu/toolbar.
    If you hold down the Ctrl key when dropping an item, you will copy it instead of move it.
    To remove an item, drag it away from the toolbars/menus and drop it.
    If you accidentally remove the wrong item, activate the Commands tab of the Customize window and select the appropriate category on the left, then locate the command on the right. You can drag it to a menu or toolbar.

    To customize a context menu:
    Activate the Toolbars tab of the Customize window.
    Tick the Shortcut menus check box.
    A special toolbar will appear, with three dropdown menus: Text, Table and Drawing.
    Each menu has lots of submenus, each of which corresponds to a context menu displayed in a specific situation.
    You can customize these shortcut menus the same way you customize ordinary toolbars and menus.
    Note: you'll find that there are often several shortcut menus closely resembling each other. If you customize one, you'll probably also want to customize the others.
    Once you close the Customize window, the special toolbar will be hidden again.
